# Vital advice that will help you succeed with your geometry homework

Geometry is one of the subfields of mathematics that even math-phobic people tend to be less intimidated by. This is in part because of how attractive it looks on paper as opposed to the numbers, charts and letters that the rest of mathematics is characterized. Nonetheless, geometry homework can be a pain at times so here’s some advice to make it a little easier.

### Start simple

In math, if you lack a proper foundation in any area, it tends to come back to you later on and any additional knowledge you try to gain falls flat til you fill the holes in what you know. Make sure that the easiest parts of the subject are so crystal clear that you could successfully explain them to a child. In fact, if you know any small children, try explaining basic geometry to them. When you can say it with the smallest words, then you’ll be sure you know it well.

### Ask for help

Going alone is extremely successful for some people. In fact, it may be the only way they know how to learn. For the majority of us, however, learning truly takes place through an exchange between two or more people. Find a person or group of people you can discuss the things you find most difficult with. It will increase the rate of your learning.

### Get visual

Geometry is a very visual aspect of mathematics. Find ways to make your assignment visual. The parts of your task that you can do this to will become simpler to you and you’ll be able to use your homework time more effectively as a result.

### Find proof

Some of us can’t fully grasp concepts until we are explicitly told in words why something is the way it is. People who feel like that may benefit from sourcing mathematical proof for the concepts they encounter in geometry. This can be sourced on line or in special texts that were written with that purpose in mind.

Most things need to be practiced before they can be mastered. Geometry and by extension mathematics is no different. You can excel if take care with your homework assignments and put in some extra time just finding additional questions to answer that your teacher may not have considered assigning.
